Curved perspective

August 7, 2023 | 18 Comments

I just discovered that I never posted this sketch which was done back in June when I was using an A4 sketchbook…

This sketch of St James church in the City was completed in about 20 minutes in fading light on a very cold day (Sydney’s definition of cold) and also while chatting to the Rector who was returning from his afternoon jog!

I don’t go out of my way to draw using curvilinear perspective but at times it’s the best solution such as this occasion when I was sitting very close to this church. I wanted to include the whole building and so curving my lines was the only way to fit it all in.

This was a lot of fun!

Hmm… I should do this type of sketch more often!

Here is the final version with a pale sky added.

Do you ever do curved perspective sketches?
